Hurray for twofers. The first page could’ve probably stood alone just fine, but I wanted that last part in there. The script I pre-wrote seemed to think I could contain this whole thing in one page (silly me). But stubbornness wins in the end as I force it all into one update… regardless of how time constrained I’ve been lately.

There’s a LOT to comment on in these two pages (up to and including that we learn quite a bit about Chase), but let’s focus on the most important thing… the possible previous meeting of Rain and Chase.

I’m sure we’ve all been in both situations, actually. One: you know you met someone before but can’t quite place where. Two: they recognize you, but you don’t know them. Both can be crappy situations. The latter can be especially crappy hoever if you’ve only recently begun presenting yourself publicly with a different identity.

Today I thought I’d wrap my blurb a little differently by summing up the chapter so far. I think if anyone’s confused, this might help clarify the end of the second page: Kylie knows something’s up. Chase might know something’s up. Rudy’s a danger to her passability. Emily fudging hates her for completely unrelated reasons. And Maria’s nowhere to be found (and Gavin’s mingling, I guess). All this in a crowded party that she will require a ride from Kylie’s closed-minded sister to get away from (with, no doubt, a questioning Kylie in the car with her). In other words, Rain’s life sucks right now.

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

O.o Atleast she has monstrous strength. Ripping apart the entire roll?

But naaaah. Rain's life doesn't suuuuuck. She's just in a sucky situation!

"She who must be obeyed."

Is that a Rumpole of the Bailey reference?

I have actually never heard of that, so not really. I mean, I've heard the line many times from many sources, so it's not exactly an original line; more like a classic. Perhaps it originates from this reference you mention, but otherwise, I really don't know where the line originated from.

Ah, after some research, it turns out the phrase was originally coined in She - A History of Adventure, by Henry Rider Haggard.

Learning about historical memes is fun. ^_____^

The way you described it made me question my own scripts a bit. But I guess seeing it written out and than drawn out ae two completely different things. Its definitely something a n00b will need to get over if s/he would want to be a comic artist in that sometimes its good to just go with the unknown impulse to just fllow with what you see despite how you originally written it.

it also makes me think of the idea of encounters and sometimes they don't have to be alll big and dramatic, but can be brief and innocent but still leaves an impression without reason. Kind of weird to know which side Chase is placed on this weird little chart of meetings. And seeing all the stuff that built up to this point that you have listed before this is officially a "my life super sucks" moment.

Onto the actual comic, I believe you made a good decision to continue this way, knowing how overly dramatic a rip of an entire paper towel roll is you need a slow build up where it is just a simple "hey Rain, hey Chase, hope your having fun, i hope so too" and than shooting in the back with a "I think I know you". Again, by itself it doesn't mean anything. But after what we saw before it means everything. Recipe for paranoia.

(Hope I'm not repeating any unnecessary views on these comments)
